    - This topic belongs in the Doctor's Clinic, NOT the Wi-Fi boards

    - Your font is way too big for no good reason

    - The way you've laid out your team looks terrible, and should look like this:

    Pokemon @ Hold Item

    - Move 1
    - Move 2
    - Move 3
    - Move 4

    - Your signature is too large, and is as of right now, being removed.

    - Deoxys is Uber, therefore banned from competitive battling should you choose to go that route.

    - Your movesets suck beyond belief, and this topic here will tell you why:


    Read that topic, read the rules, and have a nice day. Bang bang.

    Friend Code:
    In addition to what KoL said about having multiple moves of the same type on your Pokemon, another problem is that you're mixing Physical and Special moves on the same Pokemon. Only a handful of Pokemon should be used in this way. For example, Empoleon is better as a Special Attacker than a Physical Attacker, but due to lack of a decent movepool, you could put something like Drill Peck on as the fourth move.

    This is weird because Silver Wind is a powerful Bug Special move, whereas X-Scissor is a powerful Bug Physical move. You don't need both. Armaldo generally has much higher Attack than Special Attack stats. Also, a Lonely nature boosts its Attack stat further. This means you should be going for Physical moves.

    magnezone/moves:iron tail,flash cannon.shock wave,thunderbolt/nature:adamant/item:magnet

    Similarly, Iron Tail on a Magnezone? Iron Tail is a Physical move and Magnezone is absolutely a Special Attacker. This makes the Adamant nature really unfortunate, because that boosts the Attack stat at the expense of Special Attack. You could really do with getting another Magnemite/Magneton with, say, a Modest nature, and levelling it up to make Magnezone.

    Flash Cannon and Thunderbolt are fine, but now you need to find 2 more moves. Metal Sound to lowers the opponent Pokemon's Special Defense by 2 stages? Barrier to raise Magnezone's Defense by 2 stages? Magnet Rise to make Magnezone immune to Ground-type attacks for five turns? If you're playing Platinum, you could add a third Special attack, such as Signal Beam or Swift.

    Firstly, yes, replace Deoxys ASAP since he's pretty much banned everywhere.

    As for your moves, now that you've read the topic I've given to you in my post (or at least, you SHOULD have read it,) you change your movesets using what the topic tells you, post them again, and I'll fix 'em up. There's no point whatsoever in me helping you by throwing movesets at you if you don't understand why I picked the moves I did in the first place.
  6. i updated my team

    spiritomb - spooky plate swampert - soft sand salamence - sharp beak
    modest adamant adamant
    pressure torrent intimidate
    -hypnosis -hydro cannon (needs replacing) -fly
    -dream eater -dig -dragon claw
    -dark pulse -earthquake -dragon pulse(needs replace)
    -shadow ball -waterfall -aerial ace

    magnezone - magnet armaldo - stone plate tentacruel - poison barb
    hardy lonley jolly
    magnet pull battle armor liquid ooze
    -mirror shot -rock slide -protect
    -thunderbolt -rock blast -poison jab
    -shockwave -stone edge -toxic
    -magnet rise -x scissor -double team

    ok i think i should replace dragon pulse on salamence, hydro cannon on swampert, shockwave or mirror shot on magnezone , armaldo and tentacruel are ok i think. i have a technique with tentacruel and spiritomb. you tell me what i should do to make this team better.

    *Uber facepalm*

    Glad to see you checked out that topic I linked to you - looks like it has done your movesets a world of good.

    Here it is again, just in case you want to take another look:


    Sarcasm over. Read the topic and change your movesets accordingly, because they're just as terrible as they were before. Fail to do so and this thread is locked.

    EDIT: Topic locked since Taz775 is now banned.
